Dutch Junior Open 2017 Day 3 - afternoon session

The finals are decided. 

At the third day of the Dutch Junior Open there were some exciting matches yet again. It will be an all Egyptian final in the BU13 after Abdallah Amr [3/4] beat top seed Rowan Damming in four close games, and as Omar Azzam [13/16] beat Rutva Samant [3/4] 3-0. Can Amr do it again after his win at the Cologne Cup last weekend?

In the GU13 draw it will be England vs Egypt after both Dutch girls Elfi Markus [3/4] and Naomi Nohar [3/4] lost respectively to Amelie Haworth [2] and Lojayn Gohary [1]. Will it be the second title in a row for Gohary, or will Haworth take the match?

The BU15 category will see top seed Neel Joshi take on England’s Alhassan Khalil [5/8] after Khalil prevented an Indian clean sweep by beating Kanhav Nanavanti [9/12] 3-0. Yet again another winner of the Cologne Cup in the final, will Joshi add another title in Europe or will he be stopped by Khalil?

Serena Daniel [2] is in another final after beating Torrie Malik [9/12] from England in the GU15 category. Will she be victorious again after her win last week in Germany, or will Ananya Dabke [9/12] try to take another title for India?

The BU17 finalists were the last to be decided. The boys were the last matches to go on court, as George Crowne [3/4] beat fellow Canadian James Flynn [9/12] and Daelum Mawji [3/4] beat Elliot Hunt [5/8] to prevent an all Canadian final.

In the GU17 it was Fleur Maas who kept home hopes alive as she beat Canadian India Stephenson [9/12]. Daniek Krukkert [5/8] lost to a strong Katie Maliff [5/8] who prevented an all Dutch final. Can Maas win again after her victory at the Cologne Cup last week, this time in her own country, or will Maliff take the title?

All the seeds fell in the BU19 draw, as Curtis Malik [17/24] beat Vikas Mehra [9/12] and Charles Culhane [17/24] beat Israeli Yali Shass [3/4]. Will the title go to England or will the American take it home?

Top seed Karina Tyma had a tough match against Gabi Fritsche [9/12]. She needed four games to beat the Dutch girl, as Eve Driver [17/22] denied a home finalist as she beat Megan van Drongelen [5/8] in three games. Will Driver cause yet another upset, or is Tyma too strong as she aims to win her second title in two weeks?
